The DeSart & Holbrook model provided an updated prediction of the election result. The model currently forecasts a major vote share of 56.1% for Clinton, and 43.9% for Trump in Oregon. In comparison, on October 12, Clinton was predicted to end up with only 54.0% of the vote.
Putting the results in context
As any other method, models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, a good strategy is to not put too much trust in the results of an individual econometric model. At least, one should check how a model's results compare to benchmark forecasts.
Results compared to the combined PollyVote forecast
The current PollyVote expects Clinton to gain 57.5% of the two-party vote in Oregon. PollyVote currently predicts Clinton to gain 1.4 percentage points more compared to the results of the DeSart & Holbrook model.
